Is it just me, or are the Lonely Island guys (Andy Samberg, et al) wearing AE in this pic?? Cool!

Finally got a chance to take a pic of my collection (note to self: don't do that often...back hurts!). Sorry for harsh flash.

Clockwise from top left:

Yours look great! Really like the contrast.

Incidentally, what's your care regimen for these?

I have once put AE Conditioner/cleaner on them when I first got them (they darkened a bit initially which I didn't like, but lightened back up fairly quickly), and since then, I just brush the crap out of them when I take them off, at least once every couple of wears.  The picture doesn't show, but they're a pretty rough, banged up leather.  At first I thought WTH, but then realized it adds the character that makes them cool.  IMO, the rough grey looks good on the McTavish.  I see a pair of Park Ave's on eBay in "grey cloud" or something that keep coming up, and I think they look vinyl...could just be the picture.  I'll see if my iphone will get a good closeup of the leather...stay tuned.

Here's as good as it gets with an iPhone5. Pretty rugged leather. I like it...grows on you.

Anyone have experience with the Nathan? Its basically a PA on the 8 last for Joseph a bank. They have it in 10.5 and 11, since I'm a 10.5 in my kenilworths and they don't have a wide for the Nathan, should I get the 11? I'm worried it will be too long of a shoe...

I've got the Long Branch in that material - I love it.

Does that mean I won't be getting your gift of Allen Edmond Daltons this weekend?

Money refunded. Lesson learned.

How about something like the following for around 179.00:

I thought those looked familiar
post #23292 of 47264

So I'm trying to plan out my next AE purchase, and figured I'd ask for some general input here.

 

Background: I'm a resident physician in a specialty that is almost entirely clinic based.  I typically wear navy/grey/charcoal/tan wool or cotton pants with a button-down shirt, +/- the white coat.  

 

Current shoes I own:

AE Lasalle in Brown

AE Delray in Chili

AE Fairfax in Chili

AE Bradley in Brown

AE Bradley in Black

RL Sanderson in Walnut

J&M Melton in Black

J&M Melton in Burgundy

 

A few things:

-I don't really plan on getting a Park Ave/Fifth Ave at the moment in black or burgundy, as my J&Ms do the job right now, and I rarely find occasions to wear them anyway

-I'm not big on loafers

-I'm not big on monkstraps

-I don't have much use for dress boots (Dalton, Fifth Street)

-I bought both pairs of Bradleys well-worn/used already (and cheap), and am not a huge fan of them anyway, so I mostly just use them as foul-weather shoes.

 

I've contemplated a pair of bourbon Strands/McAllisters, or perhaps burgundy McAllisters.  I wish they made a burgundy Players Shoe, I like that shoe a lot better than the MacNeil anyway.  

 

Thoughts/suggestions?  I don't really need any black shoes at the moment.  I really like walnut, but don't necessarily want to overdo it.  What other styles am I definitely lacking here?

I just added a new pair of chocolate brown Daltons to my rotation. While I was puting them away, my wife looks over my shoulder and says, "...how many pairs is that now? I think you need therapy..."

At least your wife just suggested therapy. Mine issued death threats if I DARE buy any more shoes. (That was 2 new pairs ago! Haha)
